Re: How can I stop making sexist games?

I think genderwashing (is that a word?) is not really the solution either. You might as well replace all the characters with robots then, you won't offend anyone with that approach. Gender is part of the character and writing roles so that they can be filled by any gender removes some dimension from...

Re: Trina Deuhart Voice Actress (Always Open)

Question, do you do your recording with your own equipment? I am curious, because most of my musician friends have lots of audio gear but I don't know if a professional voice actress would. Also, liked your Nanako way more than your Rei. For paid work, on the continuum of a few sentences to a short ...

Re: Want to import this Mahjong game into Renpy? How?!

The short answer is, you can't. That game is written in javascript which is not supported by Renpy.

The long answer is, you can do it, but you'll essentially have to rewrite the game in python.

Re: Handling comments that appear defamatory

Maybe you can have your artist come out and say that they made the assets in question for you?

It doesn't have to be parent/child, just any authority to figure that has stewardship of the child, or even the child herself will do.

The way to get more confidence in your art is literally the thing you don't want to do.

Re: Renpy rapt is... why can not find jdk?

Posting the IRC solution here for anyone else with this problem: Make sure the JAVA_HOME environment variable is correct, or unset it entirely since the JDK does not set it by default. Example: JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.8.0_20 Note: do not refer to the bin directory, refer to the ba...

Re: Making some money with a commercial VN - is it possible?

Another part of the equation is how long it takes to produce a VN. Could you make something marketable in 3 months? Maybe. However, your competition in that market segment probably put in a lot more time than that and it will show.

Re: Unemployed... Should you get a job or Sell Visual Novel?

Chances are, if you are in that destitute situation you are only going to be able to find low level part-time jobs with practically no hours anyway. It's a new business trend where companies will refuse to take on full time employees so they can avoid paying certain benefits required by law. Since y...

Re: Is it possible to earn $5000 a month making visual novel

$5k a month seems rather optimistic for a VN developer, and I have never heard of anyone getting into VN development because it made them tons of money.

Re: Android Issue

This is probably the wrong subforum. android-8 is an extremely old SDK version, are you sure you want to be using that? The error indicates that you don't actually have that android version's SDK installed on your build host. In your build settings somewhere you should be able to change it to someth...

Re: What Should I Do To Get Patreon Supporters!

Generally for these kickstarter type initiatives you are not likely to get many supporters unless you can demonstrate a strong history or a decent work in progress. After all, people are more likely to give money to someone they think can actually produce a good result, and the best way to prove tha...
